Hostel Accommodation Isle of Mull

The Bunkhouse is 1 mile from the village of Fionnphort, the ideal location for exploring the Ross of Mull Peninsula with its dramatic cliffs, white shell-sand beaches, unspoiled natural environment, exciting wildlife and rich history. Fionnphort is also the ferry departure for Iona, making a visit to the island very accessible, as well as the point for day trips to the islands of Staffa and Lunga in the Treshnish Isles

The Bunkhouse sleeps 8 guests in two new 4-bed bunkrooms, ideal for small groups and families as well as independent travellers.  The bunkrooms and the two bathrooms are newly refurbished and the kitchen is well equipped.  The dining /sitting room is spacious with a wood burning stove and a view of Loch Pottie (Loch Poit na h-I) and the standing stone in the garden.

The Bunkhouse setting

Surrounding the Bunkhouse is 6 acres of land which is excellent wildlife habitat.  A pair of hen harriers which hunt on the moors behind the Bunkhouse are seen on a regular basis.  Owls, sparrowhawks and kestrels also are frequent visitors.  The more common woodland birds such as chaffinches, great tits, blue tits and coal tits can are often joined at the bird feeders from tree creepers and yellowhammers. Loch Pottie is visited by several duck species including teal, widgeon and tufted duck with little grebe often sighted.  In winter, whooper swan and geese arrive.

Just outside the bunkhouse is a standing stone which is reputed to have been erected as one of a series of signposts to the Isle of Iona.  It is a lovely object, standing 2.5 metres high and home to many lichens.  Interestingly  it seems to have magical powers - touching it is the only way to get a vodaphone mobile phone signal in and around  Fionnphort!

The Ross of Mull

The Ross of Mull (An Ros Mhuileach) is the largest peninsula of the island of Mull, located in the south west of the island with the Isle of Iona at its tip. Low-lying rounded knolls of pink granite, which look particularly striking at sunset, characterise the landscape of Ross of Mull. The northern coastline is edged by the spectacular sea loch, Loch Scridain and in the south by the Firth of Lorne.  The whole area has dramatic coastal features separated by beautiful sandy beaches with tantalising views out to sea of other islands on the horizon.  Anyone with an interest in walking, kayaking, cycling, rock climbing, history, culture, nature, wildlife and geology will find plenty to absorb them in the Ross of Mull.  The two main villages are Bunessan and Fionnphort with several smaller crofting communities scattered throughout the area, providing local food produce from the land and sea. Unsuprisingly the area is an inspiration to artists and musicians and this is evident in the life of the locals.

Loved it ❤️

Reviewed on October 15, 2017

This place wow (Ross of Mull Bunkhouse) will leave you so rested and chilled with the comfiest and cleanest bunk beds I have ever slept in, with Blackout blinds on the windows, to ensure the best nights sleep! (Even with a 1 year old!!!!) I loves the chill out room which is just next to the bedroom so you can be close to baby and know he is ok while you have some adult time, and I must say I felt absolutely speechless at its fantastic location so close to the gorgeous island of Iona and what's more fantastic the welcoming hosts Matt and Rachel. It's like a "Poshtel" we loved it and would highly recommend a stay here both long or short Thankyou for making our visit to Mull so memorable

Stayed September 2017
